When it comes to difficult tasks, nothing can be more disheartening than a boring, or unpleasant item on your to do list.

If you find yourself skipping around, avoiding the problems you know you will need to tackle, then this book may be for you.

There’s a saying attributed to Mark Twain that if you eat a frog first thing in the morning, you’ll feel a sense of joy all day that you’ve conquered your biggest challenge first.

We are enjoying Brian Tracy’s book, which suggests that tackling your hardest task first can be a great way to improve your productivity, and feel motivated to get more done.

This way, you can enjoy greater freedom in the rest of your day.

Many people also find that their energy levels are higher in the mornings than the afternoons.

This is another reason why it may be wise to eat that frog earlier, rather than later.
